    Only if your carrier will allow the activation of a phone from another provider. This isn't something that's a guaranteed possibility with CDMA phones. The ESN number of the phone is usually what's used when activations phones with CDMA carriers. Run it by Cellcom and see if they'll accept it and activate it. Don't expect data features to work, though.
